This is my little visual aid to remind me what I am suppose to make for thanksgiving dinner (the food also links to yummy looking recipes): apple pie (most important), brussel sprouts, garlic mashed potatoes and ze turkey. These cute little place-setting napkins are to remind me also set the table all pretty (santa gave me a great idea over at homestilo for apple center pieces, yay!). Thanksgiving is one my favorite American holidays, it's all about getting together with family and friends and being thankful. Then we obliterate all these warm and fuzzies with the biggest shopping day of the year, BLACK FRIDAY - dun-dun-dun, where we get in long lines at 3 am to go shopping at 6am - every year there is a causality where someone gets trampled (literally). Oh, America, you are so funny. I actually never leave my house the (black) friday after thanksgiving, I like to take it more literally and stay in bed safe under my covers. For one I am usually still feeling the after affects of eating half my weight in food, and for two, it's just not my thing. I actually really try to shop local as much as possible and on places like Etsy of course where my money might do a little more good.
Now for some questions: For my american counterparts: What are your thanksgiving/black friday plans? Are you making anything yummy? Getting in line at 3 am?
And for my friends abroad: Do you have anything similar as Black Friday when the holiday shopping season really kicks off and people wrestle each other for play stations and ipods?
